We celebrated labor day last week. This day honors workers all across the state for their hard work and daily dedication to their jobs. It also reminds us here at Fay and Associates that many hard workers engage in dangerous or demanding jobs. Our overall health is not only influenced by our daily life choices but can be steered by where we work. Practicing safety in the work environment is essential to staying healthy. However, as we see often, accidents and injuries happen even when workers and employers take the proper steps to ensure safety.
